As the Journales group has not been following proper protocal with-in the martial art community, His seniors and elders..... Thank you
This is not ratified by the WEKAF board. It's not really valid, is it, Fred.
R.Moore has posted and closed the posting so I could not reply but I do agree what he said, "Do not add to the fire" and I said before I'm not for any of the groups but stated what the websites are posting. These are my references:
What I am looking for is for the two groups to unity as stated in their 'mission statement'.
Hello Martin Castle,
Yes, the letter that is dated January 2, 2012, was sent to me by both SGM Diony Canete, and his son Master Gerald Canete, from the WEKAF International Organization. SGM Diony Canete is the Registered owner of WEKAF International, and the DOCE PARES Organization.
So the answer to your question regarding if this post is valid....???
My answer is YES, this is a valid letter, that is direct from SGM Diony Canete and his son Master Gerald Canete.
If you should have any further questions regarding this, you may contact iether one of them to confirm this matter.
GM Alfredo Bandalan
I'm sure you have seen this video. It's Diony swearing in the WEKAF Board of Directors.
Founders or not, it is the BOD's job to make decisions - Not the founders.
Your letter isn't valid, because the decision makers are the B.O.Directors.
What point is there in contacting Gerald or Diony? they are not the Board of Directors, they may have a voice on it, but it is a BOARD, and NOT a Dictatorship.
So according to you GM Bandalan that Supreme Grandmaster Diony Cañete owns WEKAF International?
"SGM Diony Canete is the Registered owner of WEKAF International, and the DOCE PARES Organization."
See this is where I was wrong. I thought the Members owned and govern WEKAF International not Doce Pares? So why call it WEKAF and just call it what it is. Doce Pares Tournament? Why pretend that this is an organization that welcomes ALL schools and styles when we all have to live under the DOCE PARES rules.
Mark you ask why were not unifying? WEKAFUSA.org is saying that the WEKAF belongs to the members. WEKAF-USA inc is saying it belongs to the Grandmasters. My reference see GM BANDALAN's comments.
